    ED82 + 25-75X MCII: AFOV AT 75X

    I have the ED82S with DS 30X and DS 50X. Also have the ED50. Now I am cosidering the DS 75X for Astro. My question is: it would be better to buy the zoom and use it at 75 (having also the opportunity to use all the others magnifications)? I can’t find nowhere the AFOW of the zoom @75X but only...

    Swarovski 8x32 EL Field Pro vs Zeiss Victory T* FL 8x32

    I have sold my EL SV 8x32 and bought the zeiss Victory 8x32 T FL. The Swaro had too much glare and for me that was unaceptable. Also the Swaro’s colors were unsaturated. The FOV was all in focus but the rolling ball effect was too much and the Zeiss is more relaxed. And the Zeiss is more...

    Of course I will do it, Holger. For free, as you and Henry Link, and Gjis an others do every day. But this is a different story: the book is not a free post, I have paid for it. It has been reccomended and described as:" opus magnus on binoculars", "very enjoyable", "authoritative". In my...

    I agree but this is not the case, IMHO. And I had hoped that it was, when I bought it.

    I agree with these guys! Really nothing new. You can learn a lot more searching in this forum. And the print quality is very very low. Sorry!

    Anyway, after many different solutions (breathe, saliva, isopropil alchool, soap water, microfiber, lens tissues from swarovsky) my conclusion is that the best of all cleaning stuff are the carson's C6 disposable lens cleaners (not the pen!).

    Leica Can you Fix my Noctivid or give me my cash back !!!!!

    When I say alittle play, I mean LITTLE, half a millimeter, and not in the focus, just in the diopter windows. I have had all the best alpha binoculars and the Noctivid are the best of all. You can't explain: you need to use it for a while..... You should try: I am sure You would change your mind

    Leica Can you Fix my Noctivid or give me my cash back !!!!!

    I have two Noctivids, an 8x and a 10x. I have carefully checked (of course) after Globetrotter's post and they are both perfect. Maybe a little play, but this is normal. May be the problem is with an early batch? Mines have been built in may (8X) and in june (10X) (I have checked the signed...

    leica 10x50 HD Plus vs Swarovision 10x50

    The noctivid are my favorites. I love the contrast, the colors and the view in general. IMO the Swaros are too cold, the colors are less vibrant and the flares are too invasive; I like the leica soul and life. The swaro are easy to the eye and sharp to the edge, but the wow factor is for le leicas.
